"Sheriff teams will be out in force as the holidays approach. There will be vehicle checkpoints at key bridges and crossings throughout New York City," Fucito said, adding that sheriff teams will also be conducting checkpoints for out-of-state buses.

"If you violate the travel quarantine, there will be consequences. Violation of a self-quarantine travel regulation may result in deputy sheriffs serving you a mandatory quarantine order issued by the health commissioner," he said.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the city requires a 14-day quarantine for "any individual who has spent more than 24 hours in any state on New York's Restricted State List in the last 14 days."

In addition to the checkpoints and quarantine mandates, travelers coming into New York City will be asked to submit a health form upon arrival. "In cases of violation, deputies could serve you with a civil summons that carries a $1,000 fine," Fucito said.
